Polymer Clay Canes for Beginners

27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop beginner Cane Tutorial What people are saying about this tutorial. jennifer rose Just finished this first workshop on how to make canes, and I must say I learned so much. This is exactly what I have been looking for, someone who could explain cane making in a step by step that process that I could replicate. I watched the videos, went into my studio and began to create all of the canes Alice showed. I finally have results I can be proud of, and I say thank you so much for doing this workshop. My only question now is when do we get more workshops. If you are only going to take one online class let it be this workshop. Thank you Alice for your hard work, and your dedication to helping others learn the joys of polymer clay.

Fabulous Color Selector from Idée Labs

If you’re looking for my OWOH giveaway it’s here


Patsy Monk shared this with the Florida Gulfcoast Polymer Clay Guild through their online group. I was blown away by it.

It’s called the Multicor Search Lab and it will display photos from flickr that match the colors you choose. what a wonderful way to create a color palette for your next project.

I thought with all the OWOH bloggers coming through, it would be a great thing to share will all the artists. But mainly  I was thinking about all of us working with clay and trying to figure out color combinations.

I for one don’t get many magazines these days and the ones I do get I don’t want to cut up, this is a great alternative.

The orange above was just two shades of orange. The one below is three colors, but you can add up to 10. Really a great find and a super tool. Thanks Patsy.

Lime Green Profile Face Cane Bracelet and Color Recipe

I’ve been working on several things today. This is just one of the bracelets I’ve finished and I’m working on a cocktail shaker. Too Funny! This girl has a flamboyant hat as always and a checker board blouse that matches the lime green checker board bracelet I posted yesterday.

Over on Facebook, I had so many people talk about loving the lime green color that I thought I’d share the recipe with you. I know that I am not the first one to print this, but to tell you the truth, I have no idea where I discovered it. I do think pairing the two colors is something I did on my own years ago.

Lime Green Recipe

1 part Zinc Yellow

1/16 black

Yep, that’s it! That’s all there is to it, and the second color is Zinc Yellow straight out of the package. When placed next to the lime green it looks like a light lime green. Easy, breezy.

Go Green!
